Please clarify my doubts.(Journalism)

Presently Iam working in a Software firm at Bangalore.But I'm desperate to move into Journalism.So I thought of doing a journalism course before looking out for opportunities in Print/TV Media.Since last few months i've been googling multiple forums,links to finalise the best university for Journalism.But i couldn't come to a conclusion.

First,Where I can start with Journalism ? Which is the best course ?

BA Journalism and Mass Comm.


MA Journalism and Mass Comm.(If i directly joined MA,is it possible for non-journalist student to manage?)

Or Pg Diploma in Journalism ?

Second, Which University i Can go for in Distance Learning ? (Sikkim Manipal Or Madurai Kamaraj Or Periyar Or any other)

Please help me.

Thanks in Advance.
